Description:

Bring your campaign to life with Friends and Rivals: A Character Collection for HARP? a compilation of twenty-four highly individual and comprehensively described characters. Each is revealed in terms of physical description, background, and possessions, both mundane and magical. Where appropriate, further notes detail special aspects of the character, such as spell sphere listings for clerics. Each writeup is also illustrated by a splendid black & white portrait.

All 24 characters have also been fully implemented as HARP characters, consistent with and fully compliant with the HARP rules as published in HARP (Revised), Martial Law, and College of Magics. Contributors used either the original Microsoft Excel or the Open Office version of Jonathan Dale's HARP character generation spreadsheet to create the characters. Each character is represented in statistical terms by ten spreadsheets, one for each level from 1st to 10th. Five characters (the Gryx Ranger, the Halfling Rogue, the Human Cleric (Combat), the Human Elementalist and the Human Warrior Mage) are in Open Office format; all others are in Excel format.

GMs may use these characters as NPC allies or opponents to help or hinder the player-characters; alternatively GMs may allow players to use and/or adapt these characters into ready-to-run PCs for demo games, convention play, or even long-term campaigns.

Note: When uncompressed, the total size of all the files in this product comes to 147 MB. Readers may wish to selectively extract files.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
